Security & Terrorism

The Boston Marathon bombings in April, 2013, proved that extremists are still capable of wreaking havoc on U.S. soil, long after 9/11 and the death of Osama bin Laden. The worldwide threat of terrorism has become an unpleasant reality, forcing governments and businesses to focus on safeguarding citizens and institutions. getAbstract’s summaries on security and terrorism lend a historical perspective on radical behavior and attempt to analyze current and future risks. getAbstract explains why security experts are more fearful of online attacks that could cripple infrastructures and cause economic upheaval. The chaos resulting from the 9/11 destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City may pale in comparison to a sophisticated technological assault on key computer systems. You’ll learn about the threat of financial terrorism to the U.S. dollar and global capital markets. Our summaries will also explain the ramifications of an economic and political power shift to the Eastern hemisphere.
